It was while completing his honours in psychology at a Gold Coast school that Phillip Pearce first realised teaching would become his raison d’etre. ‘I always had a passion for child developmental psychology, and I discovered I loved being in a school environment, so I enrolled in the Master of Primary Teaching at Griffith,’ he says. The flexibility of the Master of Teaching enables him and other students to work while studying. ‘I can structure my timetable around work. It’s intense but manageable. My study has given me the perfect balance of practical knowledge and theory. The lecturers come from the classroom, so they are all very experienced.

We can be discussing various pedagogical theories, and they can relate it to real life. It’s made me more confident in my pracs, and I know teaching is the right career for me.’ Phillip Pearce Master of Primary Teaching Perfect balance 08 Griffith University 2020 postgraduate study guide

I can structure my timetable around work. It’s intense but manageable.’ 09 Postgraduate study

Here’s the top questions asked about being a postgraduate student. Q. Where do I start? A. There are three steps to consider when thinking about postgraduate study:
  • Step 1: Decide what you want to achieve—Are you interested in taking your career to the next level, getting formal recognition for your experience, or changing careers completely? Some postgraduate degrees are designed to help broaden your skills to prepare you for management positions, while others allow you to specialise further to become an expert in your field. If you’re looking to take your career in a new direction, you can investigate our career change degrees, which can put you on a new path.
  • Step 2: Explore pathways—We recognise the knowledge gained through work experience, prior study as well as other forms of formal, informal and non-formal learning, which means that you may be more qualified to study a postgraduate degree than you think. If you have five years of relevant experience, you may be eligible for entry into a graduate certificate, which is a qualification in its own right and can also lead to further study, such as a masters degree. See our pathways table on page 06.
  • Step 3: Develop a tailored study plan—Work out how much time you can commit to study, taking into account your learning and lifestyle needs. You may be able to study full-time, part-time, online or through intensive workshops, depending on what you study.
  • Q. What’s the difference between coursework and research? A. The type of study you undertake will depend on what you are trying to achieve as follows:
  • Choose coursework if you are looking to advance your career, or change career direction—A postgraduate coursework degree, such as a graduate certificate, graduate diploma or masters by coursework is for you. Coursework builds on the skills and knowledge you’ve gained through professional experience and previous study. You’ll study courses (subjects) that may involve lectures and tutorials, laboratory practice, or fieldwork.
  • Choose a research degree if you want to discover new solutions —A research degree, such as a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Master of Philosophy (MPhil), will prepare you for a research career. You’ll complete a significant piece of research under supervision. Q. How much time does study take? A. Many of our postgraduate students also work full-time and balance a range of other life and family commitments with their study. Most of our degrees offer flexible options so that you can study where and when you want to. For example, you may choose to pace your study and complete one course (subject) each trimester, with approximately three hours of on-campus time plus out of class time for readings and assignments required each week. Or you could fast-track your study by picking up extra courses each trimester and finish sooner. We also offer intensive study mode for some courses, in which you’ll complete the bulk of the course over a weekend. For more information visit degrees.griffith.edu.au Q. What will it cost?
  • A. There are scholarships and government support options to assist you with financing your postgraduate study. If the degree relates to your current job, you can find out if your employer will provide an allowance or support you with study leave for exams. Costs also vary depending on the type of study as follows:
  • Coursework—All postgraduate coursework degrees attract tuition fees. These fees differ depending on whether you are an international or domestic student. Student services and amenities fees are also charged as part of your postgraduate tuition fees. Indicative costs for specific degrees are available at degrees.griffith.edu.au. Find out more about tuition fees for all postgraduate coursework degrees at griffith.edu.au/fees-charges
  • Research degrees—The Australian Government Research Training Program and Griffith University funding covers the tuition fees of Australian students for most research degrees. For more information about tuition fees for research degrees visit griffith.edu.au/research-study Q and As Griffith University 2020 postgraduate study guide 10

Deferring costs with FEE-HELP FEE-HELP is a government loan that, depending on citizenship or residency status, allows you, as a domestic student, to defer the costs of study and pay your student contribution when you are earning more money. You repay your FEE-HELP debt through the tax system so that, other than study materials such as textbooks, there are no other up-front costs. Financial assistance Once you are at university, our welfare and student liaison officers can help you plan budgets, apply for loans and equity schemes (if you qualify), and explore other financial options, such as Centrelink payments.

For more information visit griffith.edu.au/welfare Scholarships You may be eligible for a scholarship based on your background, chosen study area, hardships you’ve experienced or achievements. For more information visit griffith.edu.au/scholarships or email scholarships@griffith.edu.au Despite not having higher education qualifications, a 30-year career across a wide range of business endeavours reaped dividends for Kate Crouch. ‘I had started a Bachelor of Business degree before a “eureka moment” arrived through a casual conversation with one of my lecturers. It was a pleasant shock when my lecturer told me my work history enabled me to apply for a postgraduate degree,’ Kate says.

The mother of three became the proud holder of both a Griffith Graduate Certificate in Marketing and a Master of Marketing two years on. ‘I highlighted my event management experience as well as the ownership of two successful businesses. To top it off, the credits I earned while doing my Graduate Certificate were transferred to my Masters which meant I graduated with two degrees. My lecturers and friends were brilliant and helpful in guiding me and making me feel like I belonged despite not having studied for more than 30 years.’ Kate Crouch Graduate Certificate in Marketing and Master of Marketing ‘My lecturers and friends were brilliant and helpful in guiding me and making me feel like I belonged despite not having studied for more than 30 years.’ 11 Q and As

Lifelong learner Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Katarina Carroll APM wanted to be a community cop when she started her policing career. Instead, she rose through the ranks, becoming a trailblazer for women in the male-dominated police and fire services. She became Australia’s first female fire commissioner in 2015 and will be Queensland’s first female Police Commissioner when she takes up this position in July. ‘I think wherever you go you should leave a legacy and make the organisation a better place,’ she says. At QFES, Commissioner Carroll said her greatest inspiration was her people and serving the community.

One of my greatest joys is being a leader of a fantastic group of people. I literally have people putting their life on the line for the sake of others, and it makes me extraordinarily proud.’ An impressive alumnus, Commissioner Carroll was named Griffith University’s Outstanding Alumnus Award winner 2018. ‘I’m a lifelong learner, and a lot of that has been done through Griffith. Education influences your life personally and professionally, and Griffith has certainly done that for me.’ Katarina Carroll APM Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice and Executive Master of Public Administration Postgraduate coursework degrees 21

Criminology ‘Upon completion of my masters and my footballing career, I plan to apply to the Australian Federal Police and begin the next phase of my criminology career.’ Clare Polkinghorne, pictured right in yellow, has played football (soccer) at the highest level. She is currently captain of the Brisbane Roar and is also co-captain of the Matildas, having represented her country at two FIFA World Cups and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Clare has also completed undergraduate study in criminology with a double degree in psychological science, and found she enjoyed it so much she wanted to study further. She is now undertaking a Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Griffith. The flexibility of external study at Griffith has enabled Clare to pursue both academic and sporting goals and cope with the demands of long distance travel. ‘Upon completion of my masters and my footballing career, I plan to apply to the Australian Federal Police and begin the next phase of my criminology career’.
